    Mine would have ripped up the paper pattern, stolen the thread and yanked out the stays to bat under the couch.

    They are not as well-behaved as miss Felicity.

    I marvel that you accomplish anything with such a gorgeous sewing cat around.

    You are fortunate indeed to have such a talented cat! Her work on the boning alone was seriously impressive.

    Just the thing for a grey Monday, Felicity always makes me smile
